RØDE announces the RØDELink 2.4 GHZ Digital Worldwide Wireless System & new NTG4 & 4+ Pro Shotgun Microphones.
Australian audio company RØDE Microphones has held the largest simultaneous product launch in the company’s history, introducing multiple new products and categories.
The first announcement was the RØDELink Digital Wireless System.
A fully-digital wireless audio system, RØDELink utilises a next-generation 2.4GHz, 128-bit encrypted digital transmission sent on two channels simultaneously, providing a high-resolution 24-bit/44.1k digital audio signal at a range of up to 100 meters (over 100 yards). The use of 2.4GHz means that the RØDELink should be able to work worldwide.
The RØDELink system will consist of a number of receiver and transmitter options, and will be available in kits for specific audio needs across film, news gathering, presentation and stage use. The first to be released – The Filmmaker Kit, will consist of a beltpack transmitter, on-camera or beltpack receiver, and RØDE’s broadcast quality Lavalier microphone.
The RØDELink Filmmaker kit will be shipping globally in April 2015. Learn more about it by clicking here - http://www.rodemic.com/wireless
RØDE has also announced two new shotgun microphones, the NTG4 and NTG4+.
The NTG4 and NTG4+ exhibit lower noise and higher sensitivity, giving you cleaner audio at the source. On-board digital switching now controls a 75Hz high pass filter, 10db PAD and innovative high frequency boost which was first available on the Stereo VideoMic X, allowing you to compensate for any high frequency attenuation when using a DeadCat style furry windshield.
Enhancing the dual-powered flexibility of the NTG2, the NTG4+ comes equipped with an internal rechargeable lithium battery, a world first for a professional shotgun microphone. Providing up to 150 hours operating time, the battery is conveniently charged via any USB power source using the supplied MicroUSB cable.
The NTG4 and NTG4+ will be available globally in February 2015. For more information, please visit www.rode.com/ntg4.
